    Amazing hostel!! The staff are so helpful and friendly! The kitchen is well equipped, has big fridges and a great storage system. The vibe is very laid back and friendly. Great location- only 5 mins from the beach, shops and restaurants. Very clean too- the rooms and kitchen are thoroughly cleaned every day! Would definitely recommend.

    You expect Martina's to be rustic. This family op is also VERY clean&comfortable. Location is perfect. 2 mins to beach, boats in&out, tours, supermarket, & at least 1 great grill. Jungle stay sounds fun, but there's no transit to town or after end of tour meals, so check&know. The family will help you plan&book before&there. If you fly, it's a 6km hike wading Drake River. Ask them to arrange a taxi. USD20 Oct-21. I didn't, but was picked up on a moped packs&all. Luck? Or Bahia Drake pura vide?

    Such a wonderful place to stay! It was really cool to be out in the rural jungle area, they give you a free shuttle to and from the main town which is very helpful since it is very far to walk. There is a river within walking distance if you need a swim. The staff was extremely accommodating, the food was delicious and the Manager was so lovely and very helpful for setting up tours and how to get into Drake Bay! And you’re supporting an amazing non profit organization! Would 100% come back

    Nice Hostel in Drake Bay. Very convenient if you arrive by boat as it is walking distance away from the ocean and has a (small) supermarket close by. Everything at this hostel is extremly organised. You can always ask the kind staff for help! Be sure to make a guided tour to the Sirena Ranger Station when in Drake Bay.

    Overall it was nice. The owners and staff were very helpful and all was good. There was an issue with some people partying one night and making lots of noise but the following night was better. Also, their your prices are a bit higher than other places.

    Top place. Very well organized, services are fast and reliable. The guys at the reception are friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but sufficient for the stay. Location is also very much appreciated! The only thing that doesn’t work properly is the wifi, very slow. Would also be nice to have a custom fan for each bed (not all the rooms have then).
